Hi - Over in IRL you need a salmon/sea trout license. Plenty of people do it in Moy Estuary fairly successfully. They favor spinning a sandal and go right to the sea; channel coming in with tide is good bet.
I think that it is fair to say that with regards to this there are 2 opposing views.I'm thinking of spinning for sea trout from the shore as a Danish colleague of mine had convinced me to give it a try. I'm just wondering what the legalities are with this in Scotland. If you know of a river that has decent sea trout runs how close to the river mouth are you allowed to fish? Do I need a permit?
I'm sure you can buy an estuary only ticket that is cheaper from tickers tackle in helensburgh, best contacting the secretary to confirm.The L.L.A.I.A. control the Clyde estuary on the North bank of the Clyde West to Kilcreggan.
This is part of a River Leven ticket at £130/ season and is bailliffed although I have no idea what the legal position is and if in fact anyone has actually been prosecuted for being in possession of sea trout without permission? Perhaps an L.L.A.I.A. official would clarify?
Anyway, I do know anglers who fish regularly on the South bank from about Langbank to Largs and are pretty successful with apparently no permit in place from any authority.
So, it's a kind of mixed bag, really.:nod:
Thanks for clarifying G. I always wondered about that.:thumb:The L.L.A.I.A do actively do bailiff the Clyde estuary and they have had numerous successes at court where people have committed the above offence.

Who issues tickets for the South shore?
